Rudi, maybe you can show some example shots with Quadra.
Talk is easy IMHO. Show me the meat.
I actually went out and had a play with a quadra the other day
It has a fair bit of grunt, I have a rather average looking pic of my wife that I did as a test. 100 iso, f22, 1/250 looking into the sun. The quadra was three meters away with a 40x40cm soft box on it at full power, and it had enough grunt to light the shadow side of my wifes face properly (i know, a little soft box like that won't soften anything at 3 metres, it was just a test to see what kind of range I could use it for)
A speed lite could do the same, but not with the same amount of coverage, the soft box will light wide enough to cover at least a 24mm lens, whereas a speed light would have to be zoomed to 105mm to do the it
I actually wish I hadn't borrowed it, as I now want one, and my wife wants one too, so I am going to have to start saving for one which we will share.
It's actually a nice light little pack, no worries throwing it in a shoulder bag and having an assistant boom the flash out over people at a wedding
